Integrated Care Fellowship

About the Integrated Care Fellowship

The Integrated Care Fellowship offered at the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is a unique opportunity to learn how to provide integrated care through delivery of consultation to non-mental health settings (such as primary care), provision of  telepsychiatry, and leadership to improve systems of care.

The fellowship offers up to five positions per year. The one-year fellowship includes a combination of clinical experiences, training in integrated care implementation, and integrated care scholarship.

Patient-centered, high-quality mental health care requires providers to focus on population health. Our fellowship prepares fellows for population-based health care by providing information on health care systems, defining roles within these systems, and developing skills that contribute to better mental health outcomes.

Participants in this program will develop the skills needed to provide effective mental healthcare to a variety of populations, such as:

  • Leadership Skills
  • Understanding Health Care Systems
  • Clinical Skills 

Trainees can customize their experience and focus on specific clinical conditions or populations (such as Pediatrics or Perinatal).

Training activities will include:

  • Clinical rotations in Collaborative Care model and other consultation models
  • Learning about quality improvement in health care and doing a project with supervision
  • More in depth knowledge about Telepsychiatry and using it to provide care in different integrated care models
  • Didactic series focusing on clinical and system-based topics on population-based care
